Health Care Experts Applaud Bipartisan Senate-House SGR Package

“As policy experts from across the political spectrum, we applaud the bipartisan Senate-House framework for replacing Medicare’s Sustainable Growth Rate (SGR) mechanism. The framework satisfies the key principle that unites us: any repeal of the SGR must be linked with reforms to the payment and delivery system that help lower the rate of growth in health care costs while improving the quality of care. The framework establishes a clear path to new payment models that support value and accountability for quality and costs. We strongly support this bipartisan effort and look forward to working with the Senate and House to draft the framework into legislation.”
